the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014 and then, again, on January 1st of 2016, with familiar faces behind the counter ! It is mostly the same menu and store layout.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market.  They have on hand some delicious cookies, and brownies (baked in house) ::::  check out the counter ! They also bake Pizza to order. The coffee service and soft drink dispenser has been moved to the back of the store and there is a nice table that seats four.

Newsflash::   Did you know that the County Library system has what
they are calling "WIFI  to Go" available to check out for one week at time. This program provides you with a Wi Fi signal, utilizing a T-Mobile device to be able to access the Internet from anywhere there is a signal ! I just ordered one for myself utilizing the SLO County Library web site  "www.slolibrary.org"  and searching the word "HOT Spot" !  I will let you know how the device works on Huer Huero Road, which is one of many areas around here that has nearly zero service ! The county owns 124 of these devices, and all but one is already checked out ! So, I am on the "wait list" !  

  NEWSFLASH :: DID YOU KNOW  THAT  OUR  BELOVED  CRESTON  MARKET IS NOW HOSTING A  FRIDAY  EVENING  BBQ ?  Here's the menu : Complete dinners come with a choice of Tri-Tip, Chicken, or Pork Ribs ( very high quality ribs), bread, beans, and salad. One meat  $14. A separate serving of meat is $6.  A very healthy Tri-Tip sandwich is just $9.00. It is huge and the bun is hot ! Loads of meat ! The hours are 4 - 9 PM. You can call ahead with your order and have it waiting for you at   239-1015.  Or, come and hang out with all of us at the shaded picnic tables. You will NOT be disappointed !

Did you know that there are free classes on the Third Saturday of each month through October for SOLAR COOKING CLASSES?  Held at the Davies Farm, hosted by Phyllis, located off of Buckley Road, at  5009 Jespersen Road. Follow the signs. Starts at 12:30 PM, runs til 2 PM, includes an interesting short film and food samples. Phyllis also has a great web site :::   www.sunnybank.com  and scroll down the left side to Solar Cooking. You can phone  458-1241 or  440-9346  for more details. I took this class last Saturday and it was fantastic !

I  have added a current update  on the progress of the construction of our  long-awaited  Community  Center,  which is next to the Rodeo Grounds,  on Swayze Street, in the building that was erected in 1984 by the volunteer Fire Department, until they moved in 2012 to the  NEW Fire Station !
 
SAVE  THIS   DATE :::   JUNE  10th  =  Bingo Burger Bash. Probably the 10th annual?  The most fun you can imagine. Wine and maybe Margaritas available for purchase. Held in our beautiful Volunteer Garden -  the Peony flowers will be just past their peak, but the other flowering bushes, roses, and trees will be spectacular. This fund raiser is a collaboration between the Creston 4 H and the Women's Club. See your friends and neighbors. Great food and just a lively bunch.  Limited tickets = only 100 sold. Great chances to WIN !!

The Creston Advisory Body meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month inside the Church Sanctuary. Check out their web site for details  ( see my Contacts page ) and the Bulletin Board for the Agenda that is posted 3 days before their meeting. The agenda is also posted inside the local Library ! All sorts of reports are given, such as Police, Fire, District 5 - Debbie Arnold, etc. If you have any questions, check out their informative web site - the address is on my Links and Contacts page ( see button above ).


CHECK  OUT  THE   FIRST  FRIDAY  WINE TASTING EVENTS -  LOCAL  - BY VISITING  www.olivasdeoro.com

 there are just so many local wineries participating, too numerous to list.  There are huge events planned for May
 as well.  Please support our local businesses.  All of the clubs are always asking for donations - so please bring your friends and neighbors to their local wine events to show them that we appreciate their support.

  Thursday, May 25th,  4 PM,  at the Library =  the film  "Moana"  celebrating Japanese heritage month! Popcorn and drinks provided. This is an award winning children's film. Join us for a nice afternoon.

Monday, June 5th,  6 PM, meeting of the Women's Club. Last meeting before the Bash, so lots of details to finalize. this meeting usually is held at the many picnic tables near to the wood gazebo, and the ladies bring appetizers to share. It is a relaxed and pleasant meeting !

Saturday, June 10th   4 PM,  BINGO  BURGER BASH,  at the Garden. There are banners in two locations - here's the scoop:  Hosted by the Women's Club, starts at 4 PM with food prepared by Creston 4 H, which is very good. The tickets are $25 and can be ordered from Susan at  805-835-5155. Only 100 tickets will be sold. The Bingo games - 10 of them - are all different in their pattern, which makes it interesting. There are themed gift baskets as part of a separate raffle. There is always a "Money Hat" raffle. Bingo Winners win $50 CASH per game. If there is more than one winner, the $50 is split. It is so funny to hear the winners scream "BINGO" and get so excited ! The weather is usually very balmy, and it is fun to visit with neighbors between games and during the one hour of the meal. It is always rewarding to see the young local 4 H kids helping to clear the tables and help serve the food.  These kids are our future ! I always enjoy this event - you will enjoy it, too !
